Iraq's extreme heat and water shortages – BBC News

Iraq is one of the most climate-vulnerable places on Earth.

This summer, Sheikh Kezem Al-Kaabi fights to continue farming his ancestral land despite extreme heat and worsening water shortages.

In Baghdad, traffic cop Sa’ad Saddam Abdulhasan is responsible for one of the city’s busiest intersections. He keeps the city moving, but that means working in 50C heat.

  • The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "The Hour (day of judgement) will not come to pass before the River Euphrates dries up to unveil the mountain of gold, for which people will fight. Ninety-nine out of one hundred will die (in the fighting) and every man amongst them will say: 'Perhaps I may be the only one to remain alive."'Another narration is: "The time is near when the River Euphrates will dry up to unveil a treasure of gold. Whosoever may be alive at that time, should not take anything of it."this is like the last minor sign left to be fulfilled

  • I'm from Kerala, India.. Here in my state a dam "mullaperiyar" constructed before 126 years is in danger. The river "mullaperiyar" which is to be flowed to the Arabian sea was blocked by a dam and was redirected to another state in a contract for 999 years. There are a lot of reliable able study reports that the dam is weak and tobe decommissioned. But the other state is not consenting for new dam. And there is law suit regarding this in our supreme court. The politicians in both the states playing politics with out regarding our lives. We keralites are in fear. Even our state government is not handling this properly. So we don't get justice. The demand to decommission the expired dam by our people are not heard by anyone. We are panic. Here the climate has become unpredictable. If something will happen to the dam 5 million people of my land will be washed out to the Arabian sea within minutes… Could you please help us to protect our lives 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻#decommissionmullapperiyardam #savekerala
